Penn State to host forum on child sexual abuse

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-usa-pennstatebre87f0qw-20120816,0,1295806.story

(Reuters) - Penn State will host a conference on child sexual abuse featuring abuse survivors Sugar Ray Leonard and Elizabeth Smart in the wake of the child molestation scandal that rocked the university and its esteemed football program.

The two-day event in October will bring together some of the top U.S. experts on child sexual abuse, prevention and treatment to help educate the public about the problem, according to a statement from the university.

Nothing on the conference agenda about helping adults who were abused as children. It's the same old problem: protect the kids, forget about the adult survivors.

Here's a book on Sugar Ray Leonard:

The Big Fight: My Life In and Out of the Ring, by Sugar Ray Leonard and Michael Arkush.

http://www.amazon.com/Big-Fight-Life-Out-Ring/dp/0452298040/

Originally Posted By: Amazon.com

In his New York Times bestselling memoir, one of America’s greatest boxing legends faces his single greatest competitor: himself
In Washington, D.C., during the 1970s, a black man could get into the newspapers in one of two ways: crime—or boxing. “Sugar” Ray Leonard chose to fight. After winning a gold medal at the 1976 Olympics, Ray wanted to call it quits and go to college, but his family’s financial needs made him go pro. Boxing history was made. All the while, another, darker Ray—one overwhelmed by depression, rage, drug addiction, sexual abuse, and greed—battled for dominance. In The Big Fight, Ray comes to terms with both these men and shares a brutally honest and remarkably inspiring portrait of the rise, fall, and ultimate redemption of a true fighter—inside and outside the ring.
